"Royal Wedding" is absolutely in PD. which explains your reported quality on the tapes you have. As for the other Astaire film you mentioned, I have no clue as to the status of that particular film. TCM is perhaps the best thing that ever happened as an outlet for classic films. Fox Moive Channel, just in the past six or seven months has also been doing some digging into it's treasure trove of oldies and has been showing quite a few. They are not run frequently but if you check their schedule, you'll see more than a handful of Fox Classics showing up on their monthly schedule. I've even written to FOX in an attempt for them to dig up a film that I've not seen in decades. The film stars Tyrone Power and Anne Blythe and is called "I'll Never Forget You" which was a remake of "Berkley Square." The film starts out in black & white and switches to brilliant technocolor which is only one of the many great effects in this fantasy classic. I'm positive that "Somewhere In Time" was loosely based on "I'll Never Forget You." Why this Fox film has vanished off the face of the planet is unexplainable. I also agree with you that The Weather Channel has way too many commercials! LOL

A friend borrowed my "Royal Wedding" disc, hopefully I'll get it back soon so I can upload it.
